HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) - The Hutchinson School District is suing a Missouri-based group in a dispute over proceeds from a student fundraising effort.

The Hutchinson News reports (https://bit.ly/1rAOrgc ) that the Kansas district has filed a lawsuit against Education Funding Group in Reno County District Court. The district claims it didn’t receive it share of proceeds from a fundraiser held during the last academic year. It’s estimating the loss between $11,000 and $15,000.

The Hutchinson district signed a contract with the business in October 2013 for a fundraiser in which students sold $10 discount cards with discounts to various local businesses and restaurants. Under the agreement, the district and company were to evenly split proceeds from the discount cards.

Education Funding Group disagrees that it failed to carry out its obligations under the contract.
